I’ve suffered from plantar fasciitis for over 4 years. One doctor put me in a walking boot for 6 months. It helped, but then a couple years later both feet were affected. My mobility went downhill and I had surgery in September 2017. The surgeon didn’t care about me enough to continue treating me and I finally started physical therapy.

I arrived at DPT having acquired plantar fasciitis from what I believe was a combination of of flat feet and walking with very tight calves. (Nine months earlier I had a double knee replacement and since have been struggling with tight calves.) During my rehab for my plantar fasciitis I found the Astym treatment to work wonders on my heel pain. Almost immediately the pain in my arches decreased from Astym therapy. And now only 13 visits later I have gone from a pain of 6 to a 1.

I had been suffering with plantar fasciitis in my right foot for a very long time, years off and on. Sometimes it was so bad, I could barely walk. Those first few steps in the morning were incredibly painful. I have always enjoyed working out, running and being active. I would have to give up running for months on end at times and had to adjust my routine in the gym to accommodate the pain in my foot. I had seen a podiatrist many times, used custom orthotics in my shoes daily and had Continue reading Astym Relief
Limping into the gym locker room, I spotted a flier advertising a new treatment available in town that would treat plantar fasciitis. After suffering from and attempting to treat this for well over a year, I was anxious to try something else. Continue reading Oh, what a relief it is! Chronic plantar fasciitis solved with Astym therapy!
I had a knee replacement in Jan 15 that did not go well causing constant pain and swelling requiring arthroscopy in Jun 15 to remove scar tissue. The joint was too loose and in Feb 17 I had to have a “Revision” or second replacement. Scar tissue has apparently been hindering my range of motion and causing increased pain. Continue reading Finally Some Relief! After surgery, Astym therapy relieved pain and increased my range of motion
Five years ago, I had a flare up of my plantar fasciitis and I ended up on crutches. It was a very long rehab and very painful. Since that time I have had a laparoscopic knee surgery, two total knees and 1 revision of one of the total knee surgeries. I have endured lots of pain and discomfort but the plantar fasciitis ranks right on top of pain. It can be an excruciating pain just getting out of bed in the morning and trying to walk to the bathroom. Continue reading Great Results for Plantar Fasciitis with Astym Therapy
I was receiving therapy for several months -6 for plantar fasciitis and after the pain not getting better my therapist wanted me to try Astym therapy . I saw a difference immediately in the pain level, it was not gone completely but there were many times that I could actually be pain free for the first time and my pain level went from a 8+ to a 4 and I was able to walk again. If my plantar fasciitis were to occur again, I would definitely have Astym therapy again and would recommend it to everyone.

I started to suffer from Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot last winter. It wasn’t caused by an injury, it just slowly started to bother me and got progressively worse as time went on. I went to a podiatrist for help but the inserts in my shoes really didn’t alleviate the pain. Continue reading Astym Therapy Helped Me To Walk Normally Again!
I have had difficulty and pain with walking/running for few years, and it got to the point where it was stopping me from doing my normal daily activities. After numerous doctor visits, and various treatments I still did not have the relief or answer to my problems. My foot pain stemmed from plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, over-pronation, and an old Achilles tendon injury I had suffered in my left foot/ankle. After finding what was causing me so much pain I directed my attention to stretching exercises, elastic support socks, and use of an arch support did not give me the relief I was searching for. Continue reading Bye Bye Foot Pain, Thank You Astym Therapy
I was seen for heel pain. The PT performed astym therapy on my heel and calf. After a few sessions was able to get back into walking without pain and getting back into running and to train for a marathon.
